Yeah, Phil seems, at least in public , to have mellowed quite a bit . In 82 , I believe he was still drinking a bit . I know Mickey could be extremely demanding of the roadies , and Pigpen's " I'm gonna rip off your head and shit down your throat" certainly must have made an impression on the hapless sound man !

What show can I hear Pigpen say "I'm gonna rip off your head and shit down your throat"?

Do you know precisely which recording or which song? Maybe I didn't have my volume up high enough between songs but I didn't hear anything out of the ordinary on this one:

The SUNY shows were being run by the students. The Dead tried in vain to get their own folks in place, but the SUNYites were adamant. Thus, these shows tend to be weak. Weir and Garcia were extremely pissed; Pig was really just screwing with the guy. Nonetheless, they played the last ever Viola Lee, which surprised all of us.
